Much better weight than expected. Not detailed too much by Xmas binge.
Lettuce wrapped burger, salad
Ham, veggies late
Gym resumes Monday after a hectic week
4 weeks in the books. Very good first 3... Horrible 4th week.
Salad, green beans, steak tips
Chili w/avo late
Back to gym Monday and fully back into it after Xmas week. No excuses
Happy New Year's Eve. No plans (working tonight) except to hang at home with the wife, perhaps take a drive to see some fireworks, and enjoy some wine (NO BEER!)
fasted thru the morning until about 3 pm. Really like the LeanGains style of eating in an 8 hour window from about 3 pm to 11 pm. Also... hit the gym again today and felt good.
protein smoothie (spinach, protein, almond milk, pineapple, berries)
ham, sweet potatoes
few glasses of red wine ringing in the new year
deadlifts - 245x4, 225x5, 205x6
chin-ups - 35/45/55 (weight assist)
Weight still coming down from last week, but feeling good again. Focused on leaving that tough Xmas week behind me. Stayed good on NYE last night... just 1 glass of red and no snacks. I LOVE not being hungover on Jan. 1st.
Another good day today... went skiing for a bit and hit the gym on my dinner break at work for a quick walk/jog.
protein smoothie (spinach, banana, protein, almond milk, almond butter)
hot wings, broccoli slaw, salad
I need to start cooking more at home. I know that hot wings are low carb and not horrible, but I could certainly make a healthier version with chicken breasts, hot sauce, etc. Also, loving the broccoli slaw from Whole Foods, BUT I know there's a bit of sugar in there and I could make something comparable without too much effort. NEED TO GET BACK IN THE KITCHEN IN 2013!
And... just noticed that my little journal here has 5 stars. Thank you to those following along and rating it high. Hope it helps in whatever journey you're on. If you're not keeping one for yourself... what are you waiting for?!?! Great tool to stay honest.
Back to heavy lifting tomorrow... bench press/dips. Can't wait! Happy New Year all. :-)
Solid day overall. Felt good in the gym
Fasted thru 5:30 pm
BAS w/ spinach, bacon, pear, raisins, feta, carrots
Celery w/ roasted red pepper dip
Bloody Maria (tequila instead of vodka)
1 beer (last of holiday home brew)
Bench press - 205x4, 185x5, 175x6
Dips - 5, 6(25 assist), 8(35 assist)
Blk coffee, banana pancakes (paleo... Not bad ones!), few links of turkey sausage
Another coffee out (panera painfully low on primal options... So didn't eat)
Few slices of ham as a snack
Stuffed bell peppers (really good!)
2 glasses of red
Small piece of paleo key lime pie.
Leftover paleo banana pancakes, turkey sausage, coffee
Carrots, red pepper dip, 2 glasses of red.
Very long day... Just some snacks all day while up in the mountains. Went for a burrito and shoulda had a salad instead. But active all day skiing/snowboarding. Good to not snack all day on junk
Just about ready for some weight to drop, but I can't point the finger at anyone but myself for making some non-primal choices. While just cheating here and there, the 80/20 is such a slippery slope and it all adds up. Shoot for perfection! The 80/20 will inevitably happen... but it will turn into 60/40 if a full commitment isn't there.
3 eggs, 4 strips bacon, 1/2 avocado
spiral ham, veggies, 2 squares 90% dark chocolate
seltzer w/ lime juice and small piece of paleo key lime pie

military - 115x6, 105x7, 95x8
Blk coffee, egg/ham/blue cheese scramble w/ avocado

Bacon wrapped chicken w/ cauliflower rice, 2 glasses of red
Double post here after missing yesterday:
blk coffee, protein smoothie (kale, protein, mango, pineapple, berries, almond milk)
bacon wrapped chicken (leftovers), wasabi almonds
primal meatloaf, sweet potato
Weight back to being on the right track. Feeling better again after using too much wiggle room. Focused on sticking with it after a bit of a lull.
ham/egg/feta scramble with 1/2 avocado
meat loaf, 2 sweet potatoes
bacon wrapped chicken, cauliflower rice, wine
deadlifts - 255x5, 235x6, 215x7
